Little Blue Lake is a water-filled sinkhole that you can swim in! It is roughly a 10 minute drive from Mount Gambier and absolutely worth a visit. The lake reaches almost 50 metres in depth at its deepest point with the water temperature being a very refreshing (f***ing freezing) 12 degrees all year round.
The lake has a diameter of almost 50m, and is surrounded by cliffs that are around 8 metres in height, making it feel pretty special when you're in the water. The council has added steps and a pontoon to access the water easily from those who don’t mind dabbling in a cold water swim.
The location is also used for cave diving, but you’ll need a permit if that is your boogie (it is not mine... yet).
This place is definitely worth a stop on your trip to South Australia!
